I got this old f401 camera which doesn't work.
when i turn on the camera when its in the shooting and video mode, the lens opens and the camera beeps twice and nothing happens.. the lcd screen doesn't turn on.
when i turn on the camera on gallery mode, the lcd screen works and it works fine.. but when i switch over to shooting or video mode, the lens opens and the camera switches off.
i guess i need to take it to a repair man.. but can someone tell me which part isn't working and how much will it cost to replace/repair that part?

The D90 has three different autofocus modes. In the AF-S mode it will not shoot until it has focused. In the AF-C mode it will shoot when you press the shutter release button even if has not focused. In the AF-A mode the camera switches between the AF-S and AF-C modes so either can apply.Also, bear in mind that the camera doesn't really know what you're taking a picture of. It may focus on something other than your subject. If you're in the single-area AF mode then you control which of the eleven focus points the camera uses. In any of the dynamic-area AF modes the camera decides.For full details on how the various modes work, please consult your manual. You might also check out the Nikon D90 video tutorial.
Connect the camera
Turn it on
Open (my) computer
Look for a hard drive which wasn’t there before
double click it
Inside there will be several folders
One of them has your pics in it
Copy and paste them to wherever you want
There are no remedial suggestions I am sorry to say.
These devices are made in such a way that a 'repair' would not be possible only replacement if under warranty- which this one longer is.
4 years is a good life and technology has moved on now so much that a new camera is going to be the only option.
I have a blue LED problem too....One day the F401 was in its cradle with lights working all right. Next day they were not working. I tried removing and replacing the battery, I also borrowed a cradle, usb cable and mains adapter - but still no LEDS. However, the images upload to the PC as usual, the self timer works, the camera continues to take perfectly good pictures and, as far as I know, the battery is being charged. Any advice/comment will be appreciated if it helps to overcome this problem.
Incidentally, this latest malfunction is a bit annoying since the camera has already had a major CCD fault. I appreciate that digital cameras rely on microelectronics, but it does seem a bit 'throw-away' when you are told by the Fuji technical people that the cost of a possible repair is more than the current worth of the camera.
I have two conventional SLR (Konica TC Autoreflex and a Nikon 601S) both of whcih are working perfectly despite being 27 and 9 years old respectively. So much for progress, eh?!
